Senior Consultant (Former Employee) says"This has been a very successful company for years. Then a second generation CEO took the reigns and, very quickly, started changing the culture and direction of the company. They got away from what they were good at and started abandoning the personal attention they were giving their clients."
Graphic Design Intern (Former Employee) says"As an intern, not a lot of work to be done. Had to bring my own laptop for work, most jobs were backup or experimental projects for future review. Not much direction or learning experience, but always tried to make each project the best it could be.Long lunch breaks, casual Fridays with dogs in the officeFelt isolated (had a cubicle), very formal attire required"
Former Employee - IT Professional says"Horrendous management; care only about bottom line; they do not care about building or developing long term employees. Loyalty means nothing to them - they "manage" by lay-offs. They "think" they are progressive and employee centric, but nothing could be farther from the truth. Do not believe any of the corporate line. Their behavior speaks volumes. They lay-off long term employees, and replace them with 6 figure executives, who care only about money. Honestly, I do not know how this place is still in business."
Former Employee - Senior Consultant says"Over worked and under paid, and appreciated."

Corporate Sales Representative says"Worse management ever! There has been some changes in the last year and after that it went downhill! The moral is down. Upper Managment does not care about their people! They are full of lies! The also love to micro manage... they also don't know how to treat sales people ( the engine in the company)"
